There’s plenty of hype about the use of ChatGPT and while the language AI has won the love of millions, it’s also irked thousands. Mostly, those who have been locked out when they needed the use of the chatbot the most. This has allowed numerous competitors, who flew under the radar upon the initial launch of ChatGPT, to flourish once more.
Arguably the best and most popular chat alternative to ChatGPT, ChatSonic is a language-based AI that integrates not only the GPT-4 functionalities but also has blended in Google’s Search functions to stay up to date with all the latest information. The AI can also offer Text-to-speech functionalities and is useable by Voice Commands so visually impaired users are still able to access information.
Once you’ve signed up for an account, the Chatsonic AI will also remember past queries you’ve submitted, or any additional comments with information you’ve supplied, allowing it to answer any follow-up questions from past conversations. As for customization options, users can also pick a chat personality to allow for more in-depth and specific response generations.
Some of the options include a poet, interviewer, travel guide, motivational coach, comedian, and even an astrologer. There’s very little not to love, especially for those who are in the world of marketing, content creation, or social media. It’s free for the first 10,000 words, after which you’ll need to go onto a paid-for plan.
2. Microsoft Turing
Another top alternative AI language chatbot is Microsoft’s AI language model, known as Turing, a Natural Language Generation artificial intelligence. It’s fantastic at summarizing existing information and providing it in a concise and well-thought-out way. It also can offer sentiment analysis as well as answering questions that range from superficial to more existential. This means you can ask it how to play the pokies online NZ offers or what the meaning of life is, and still get a reasonable answer for both.
It’s the ability to generate appropriate and contextually appropriate information as well as be able to be fine-tuned for a host of industries and uses. However, it isn’t the best language model choice for those who are seeking creative answers or requiring imaginative responses.
3. Perplexity AI
The Perplexity AI is another good ChatGPT alternative. Since it’s OpenAI trained it offers very similar ChatGPT functionalities and is often used for conversations that require nuanced responses. Users of it also appreciate that the AI can hold its own in conversations.
One thing that many students and graduates may enjoy is the fact that Perplexity will also cite sources used for its responses, such as from websites like Wikipedia. This is great for anyone who needs some due diligence done regarding where the information they are receiving comes from. It can be added as an extension to your toolbar so you can ask it questions directly about the pages you visit. A drawback, however, is that it cannot remember past conversations.
More Than Just ChatGPT
While ChatGPT remains a top choice for those engaging in conversational topics and seeking in-depth answers, it shouldn’t be forgotten it’s not the only chatbot around, and there are plenty of other tech tools that offer their own benefits. The fact that there are plenty of good competitors around makes the world of AI chatbots one that will continue to grow, shift, and change for the better. Allowing users the chance to pick and choose between the options out there to find their best fit, whether they’re a marketer, coder, or student.
